EAST CARSON STREET

Joe Grushecky & The Houserockers' album version


Some people said I should leave
There's use no hanging around
If you want to make it boy
You better get out of this town
But they got it all wrong
Just as wrong as can be
I want to live with my friends
Live with my family

So please understand
The roots they run deep
I can feel this town breathe
I can hear its heart beats
So meet me tonight
Down on East Carson Street

All those second hand stores
Selling our memories
All the bars and guitars
Were my symphonie
It's where I had my best times
It's where I wanna grow old
And see my children take pride
In the Black and the Gold

So please understand
The roots they run deep
I can feel this town breathe
I can hear its heart beats
So meet me tonight
Down on East Carson Street

The bridges and the rivers
The sound of the railroad cars
Take a ride on the inclines
And climb on up to the stars

So please understand
The roots they run deep
I can feel this town breathe
And hear its heart beats
So meet me tonight
Down on East Carson Street
Meet me tonight
Down on East Carson Street
Meet me tonight
Down on East Carson Street
Hey yeah
Down on East Carson Street
Yeah yeah
Down on East Carson Street
(Meet me tonight) yeah yeah
(Meet me tonight) down on East Carson Street
(Meet me tonight) down on East Carson Street
(Meet me tonight) down on East Carson Street
(Meet me tonight) down on East Carson Street
(Meet me tonight) down on East Carson Street
(Meet me tonight) down on East Carson Street
(Meet me tonight) whoa, whoa
(Meet me tonight)
(Meet me tonight) [fades out]
